A Mind Blowing Tip to Calm Your Dog during a Thunderstorm


As I write this brief post, it’s raining hard here in Dallas and the rain is accompanied by booming thunder and lightning strikes. I heard this tip the other day that it’s the static electricity in the air that can freak out dogs during storms. The person who told me this told me to wipe a dryer sheet on my dog if she starts to panic or shake during a storm.  [Read more...]

Confessions of a College Slacker: My Biggest Regret


Screen Shot 2015-06-05 at 11.30.25 AM

Previously, I asked you guys to send me questions — you came through!  Here’s the fourth in a series in which I talk about the things you want to know!

I’ve had the opportunity to speak at a lot of schools and churches over the last few years, and it seems like every time I do Q&A, someone always asks me what my biggest regret in life has been. So today I thought I’d answer that question for everyone else.

My biggest regret is the way I handled my college years. For those of you who don’t know, I went to Kansas State University on a football scholarship. K-State is a school that has produced a lot of NFL players over the years and like most incoming freshman, I hoped that I might end up in the NFL as well. The only problem with that was, I was the classic case of a kid who didn’t handle his business like a man. Instead of devoting myself to getting better in every workout, drill, and practice, I did just enough to get by. To this day I can’t pinpoint why I handled myself the way I did except to say that I was immature. I wasn’t ready for the full-time job that college football is and I decided to take the easy route which lead to a disappointing career and a lifetime of regret.

Football wasn’t the only thing that I didn’t devote myself to while in school – I also slacked off in class. I was finally living on my own, 500 miles away from home and I didn’t have a parent to tell me to go to class or to study for mid-terms. I was on my own and I quickly realized that the professors don’t know if you’re absent when there’s three or four hundred people in their class. I skipped a lot of class and as a result got a lot of bad grades and missed out on a good education. Again, I’m going to have to chalk that up to being immature.
